Planning for Custom Adapters
The following table lists some of the questions that you need to answer in planning for custom adapters.
|Why create a custom adapter?||
|Do I need any additional software or tools to create an adapter?||No. All you need is Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2003, and a Microsoft BizTalk® Server 2004 installation with the Development and Runtime Components. Be sure to install the SDK, which contains a sample file adapter that you can use as a template to create a custom adapter.|
|What decisions should I make before I start coding my custom adapter?||Read about each of the adapter types and variations to determine which are appropriate for your situation. For more information about the different types of adapters, see About Adapter Variables.|
|Are there any adapter samples that I can study before creating my own adapter.||Review the code samples in the Adapters folder of the BizTalk Server SDK. For more information, see Adapters (BizTalk Server Samples Folder).|
